3D model description

Nuke is designed for 3D Printing from the ground up. Every angle and area was tested for safe and reliable printing on most makes and models of 3D printers, so it just may work in your own. Parts fit in print beds down to 6”x6” and require no support material. Assemblies are simple and require only super glue and hand tools. To top it off, the super simple and angular shapes of Nuke make for small file sizes that download, slice and print fast and without hiccups.

Simple, fully illustrated instructions in PDF form teach you how to set up, print and assemble a Nuke Ukulele. We go step by step, and make sure you don’t forget a single drop of glue. If you are relatively new to using your printer, Nuke is a great intermediate project with no guesswork.

Nuke is a fully playable soprano ukulele that uses standard nylon strings. At 20% infill it is a resistant, lightweight and highly resonant instrument that can be electrically amplified, yet is loud enough by itself to practice in your room. It is very sturdy, has no delicate protruding parts and is ideal for travel.

3D printing settings

All of Nuke’s parts are designed to work best by being sliced at 20% rectilinear infill , with 3 shell layers, and 3 top and bottom solid layers. The ideal resolution is .3mm per layer on a .4mm nozzle. Many setups are different than this, but we designed Nuke to be straight forward in setup and construction, and you might just get it to come together on your first try! (don’t be discouraged if you don’t).
At 20% infill, Nuke is structurally stable, lightweight, uses less material and resonates better to your playing.
